Despite Paul Walker's sudden death last November, his film "Fast & Furious 7" will live on. The release date has been pushed back eight months to April 10, 2015, and the film will resume shooting next month. Tyrese Gibson opened up to "The Insider" correspondent Michael Yo about how he's preparing to go back to work.
 
"There's really no way to prepare for it, you know. Crazy thing is, I pulled out a photo album last night, and I got all of these pictures from when we first did '2 Fast 2 Furious' over 10 years ago," the actor revealed. "You would never ever think, one day he's not going to be there anymore. … It's going to be a little rough, but I think at the end of the day, Paul would want us all to keep going."
 
Fans of the movie franchise will be happy to know that the late actor will still be in the film. Sources told the Hollywood Reporter that the studio had to tweak the script and that Walker's character will not be killed off but instead will simply retire. Tyrese also revealed that a large portion of the film was already shot with the late actor.

So, just how much of the movie has been shot? Tyrese told "The Insider," "Thank God close to 85 percent of the movie was shot with him in it. The fans are really going to feel like they're still experiencing Paul Walker and Brian O'Conner in this franchise and make the best of it."
 
We're excited to see the new film, and it will be a great way to remember Paul. Check out this video to see Tyrese's candid comments about getting back to work, and tune in to "The Insider" for the latest in entertainment news.
